12. Spoiler and Porthole

Because everyone knows a spoiler makes you go faster! To get that ‘just left halfords’ look we drilled out the existing rivets that held the roof up then folded a sheet metal extension, riveting it as we went.

Both of us from the get go knew we would have to add a porthole window too, and not a cheap plastic thing. Real brass porthole windows turned out to be rather expensive, but after a few days of searching we managed to find 6 for £100, we just had to have a little holiday by the coast too 🙂
